Elite Dangerous: Odyssey gets new trailer at The Game Awards

Six months after it was first announced, The Game Awards viewers got to check out a first gameplay trailer for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey.


Amazingly, Elite Dangerous is still kicking and still delivering high-quality space adventures. And no, Frontier Developments is not done with the game yet. Earlier this year, Frontier announced that Elite Dangerous would get its next expansion in the form of Odyssey. During The Game Awards on Thursday, players got to check out gameplay for Odyssey for the first time to the sounds of David Bowie's "Space Odyssey."

First revealed back in June, Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is set to feature brand new worlds, all bolstered by new tech that will bring them to life like nothing seen in the game to this point. Players can form their crews across new social hubs scattered around the galaxy and take them across the cosmos to fulfill new contracts. And yes, that involves exploring worlds on foot for the very first time. While Frontier is touting first-person combat with fresh weapon and gear options, players will be able to approach the game how they see fit, utilizing an action-based approach or putting their diplomacy and commerce skills to the test.

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is coming in early 2021 to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It'll sell for $39.99 USD with pre-orders now open on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
